Homewrecker Charters

Lakebreeze Drive
Newcastle ON, Canada

Based in Newcastle, Ontario, Homewrecker Charters fish the abundant waters of Lake Ontario from April through December. They are dedicated to providing a rewarding, hands-on experience to their clients and welcome you aboard their boat for a productive day fishing the greatest freshwater fishery in the world.

The ‘Homewrecker’ is a fully rigged 27 ft Penn Yan Pro Hunter that is equipped with premium equipment and electronics to make your day on the water one to remember. Powered by a Mercury inboard engine, the boat cruises at around 20 knots and will get you to the fish. The boat’s fully closeable forward section will keep you comfortable and dry whatever the weather, and there is plenty of seating on board as well as a restroom.

Everyone is welcome on a trip with Homewrecker charters, whether they are first timers or veteran fishermen. The captain loves nothing more than seeing his guests hook a huge Salmon, Trout, or Walleye for the first time, or to guide them towards their trophy catch of a lifetime.

Everything you need for your trip is provided in the price, and you will also be supplied with a Great Ontario Salmon Derby ticket that is worth $115 if purchased separately and gives you the chance to win $270,000 in weekly prizes.

About the Captain

Shawn Banks
Newcastle, Ontario, Canada
Member since April 2016
It’s no fabrication to say that fishing runs in Capt. Shawn Banks’ blood. He comes from a line of Nova Scotia commercial fishermen, who depended on catching fish in order to survive. With a passion for fishing that has been passed down from father to son for generations, Capt. Shawn can guarantee that his dedication and expertise can rival that of the sport’s top professionals. He has fished the waters of Georgia Bay since he was a boy, and moved on to fishing the Great Lakes as soon as he was old enough to drive there 21 years ago. When he wasn’t on the water, he was at the dock, absorbing the knowledge of older and more experienced fishermen and learning everything he needed to know to become a successful charter boat captain today.
